Another fantastic time at Forest School. We love being outside and letting our imaginations run free. We all show such kindness, creativity and confidence, and enjoy spending time together.

In forest school we enjoyed getting back into nature and back into the routine of school. We spent time playing, building, reading, and exploring. It was very chilly so the cabin was open and many children enjoyed snuggling up inside and reading their favourite books.
A chilly afternoon at forest school today, but that didn’t hold us back! We explored, made leaf people, attended many weddings and enjoyed each other’s company!
This week in forest school we explored the outside making up our own games. Some children painted their wild thing faces, while others played football. Mrs Truman had several weddings, so bouquets of leaves were a must!
In forest school today we used a hand drill to drill holes into conkers. These were then threaded onto sting to make necklaces or bracelets. We also used a hole punch to make leaf necklaces.
We explored using a hand drill and a clamp to drill holes into conkers. We loved it soo much that Mrs Truman had a very long que of children all waiting for a turn! We painted some fireworks using bright colours and scrubbing brushes too.

We all worked together to make a fire safety circle using tyres, crates and logs. We then found bricks and put them in a circle around the fire pit to keep the fire contained. Our amazing Mrs Truman lit a fire and we heated apple juice mixed with a bit of sweet cinnamon in it. We sat around our lovely fire drinking our warm drink and eating marshmallows!

We used clay and clay tools to sculpt pots and bowls, monsters, faces and animals. We then wound wool around card leaves to create textured leaves, which looked amazing!
16th September 2021
We found an interesting leaf and drew around it on a paper plate. We then chose some interesting colours to drop onto the plate. Then, using a magnet and a paper clip, we moved the paint around to create interesting patters, before letting it dry and then cutting out the shape of the leaf.
We found interestingly shaped sticks. Using wool we decorated our sticks and turned them into magic wands! Watch out! We are very good a casting spells with them!
